Yesterday's release from the Environmental Protection Agency on California projects receiving Recovery Acts funds to clean up contaminated "brownfields" did not mention it, but Anaheim's Betsy Ross Park is also getting in on the action, the Orange County Register reports today.

More Federal Brownfields Cleanup Funds Coming Anaheim's Way, Too

A $450,000 EPA grant will help the city nearly double the size of the park at 1280 W. Santa Ana St. from 5.5 to 9 acres. The same park project received a $200,000 grant last year.
The park first opened in 2003, about three years after a petroleum and agricultural supply distribution center that had been on the property for 80 years closed and sold the land to the city.
